Tufi Possum

Tufi offers a boutique resort, nestled on top of the only ‘fjords’ in Papua New Guinea. It is located at Cape Nelson in Oro Province some 130 kilometres due east of Kokoda and not too far from the Milne Bay and Oro Province border. It offers 24 hour reticulated power, in all air-conditioned bungalows. Not only does it offer pristine reefs and amazing underwater macro but Tufi also offers a range of exciting adventure activities, with everything from bat caving to deep sea fishing, bush and nature walks where many species of birds are seen, kayaking as well as snorkeling trips for non-divers and overnight village stays.

You will find perfect peace, no traffic, no television, no newspapers, no pollution. A holiday that makes the outside world and all the daily stresses seem a million miles away in another time. Local tribal villages give visitors an insight into indigenous culture, through a range of specially designed cultural activities. Tufi offers a truly cultural experience that no other resort has to offer from outrigger safaris, treks to remote locations, to cultural shows and overnight stays in village guesthouses.
